Greetings folks.

I'd like to remind you that our Terms and Conditions apply to all areas of our forum. This includes - but it not exclusive to - the following:

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are offensive, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

Many of you are incredibly talented, and we welcome your input on our forum and your guidance with folk just learning the ropes. However, more recently some of you have been prone to nothing more than bullying or antagonistic comments. This stops now, or I will stop it for you. Permanently.

The TRLE community is a great one. Please keep it that way.

Hi tlr,

Yes, I totally agree with you, the TRLE section should be for helping others improve their skill, and for everyone to learn from each other.

Finally an administrator has stepped in! It's downright bullying what some people say, and I'm glad that this rude behavior is being addressed.

Yes, but thats not forum related..its very personal. Pretending to be someone your not is against the law and certainly very nasty.

All members have cooled down. We don't get 4 pages of spam every time somebody posts a screenshot, so things have changed for the better.

Also, let's not talk about the MSN impersonator we have on our hands right now, there is not much I think we can really do about it, I have already contacted abuse [at] hotmail [ d o t] com about this person.

I didn't report anything because I thought if I used the report button too much it'd break the server, as much fighting as there has been. :p

Thanks for stepping in though, tlr. :tmb:

your right it is a Jump switch , but its wadmergers command (from that animation) that moves lara to a different direction/area, pretty basic really , people who want to be secretive are ****heads

This is an example of what I'm talking about. Reece won't be back here for a while.

I myself would never be that cruel to anyone though, but you know what they say.. people never change:o

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are offensive, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws.

I once tried to look up what 'Forum Rules' have to say on that and was astonished to not find any such topic.
I then waded through the tons of boring legal stuff in the terms and conditions, where I finally found one little sentence that also mostly seems to be legally concerned and I had to look up this odd neverseenbefore word derogatory to realise that is actually all that is there
By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages that are ... derogatory, ... .

Not that I think having more prominent 'Forum Rules' actually have a big impact, but still, very hidden.

In the sticky about previously :confused: sticky topics one can find this on trle subforum netiquette,
Please read this first : FORUM NETIQUETTE (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=75927)
I always wondered why it was un-stickied.

Isnīt this a little harsh... i meen a warning ban first sounds more reasonable to me... but hey thats just me:p

I just want people to know what it feels like to post rude comments to a screen/video/anyones work. You may think it is funny, but if you think deeply, is making somebody else feel bad about themselves funny? NO!

The reason I quit my previous project is because I got rude comments beyond belief, and the worst part is, they would NOT stop, and there was nothing I could do to stop it.

So please, you need to realize that no body starts of as an excellent level builder, but they need your kind constructive criticism to help them learn more, and improve your skills. They do not need for you tell tell them their project looks [insert rude comments here].

The TRLE community has really changed over the past few weeks, and I find people WAY nicer, and I am seeing that people are really helping others out, and that is what we need here!

So overall, like tlr said, be nice, and be polite, and be helpful! :wve:

Thank you Mr. Justin. However it's human's nature to feel destructive and be offensive. :)
I wonder or this will do any good. ;) In any case I trust you will be there for the ones that do not succumb to your lesson in ethical behaviour. It is always a pleasure to see you act as keeper of order and justice. It makes my heart go warm. I wonder what work you do besides TombRaider.;)

I think perhaps a permanent ban is alittle too harsh. The TRLE world, like the real world is harsh and unfair. Those who make the comments are usually the ones that have helped others with the same problem time and time again and are rather sick of the same questions being asked, once again... Sometimes the answer is right in front of them!

Although of course I in no way support the 'bullying' of other members, a permanent ban - I think - is much too harsh for someone who may have just been alittle ticked off at the time.

Even Picasso would have been told some of this artwork was crap afterall :p He moved on.

As much as I hate overexposed negative comments I also hate overexposed positive comments. Like the polite police on your neck. We all know how to be polite, no need to make it "worse".

Like people making bad comments more bad, does not mean that nice comments need to be more nicer! I sounds like sucking up. Just be normal. I think it will be hard to make it better in here as there is a lot of age difference. Age has certain an influence on how to cope with "negative comments" so occasionally things burst anyway. The improvement need to be on both sides of the coin.
